November 1, 2017: Beck Road Update
November 1 Update:
Although the paving contractor will need to return to complete striping in the intersections, there will be no more closures of Beck Road for this project!
October 30 Update:
Southbound Beck Road will be closed Monday and Tuesday this week. The paving contractor will be installing the final layer of asphalt and this should be the last time the closure is needed. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
October 25 Update:
We have been advised Cadillac Asphalt will close southbound Beck Road Thursday, October 26, through Sunday, October 29. Northbound drivers on Beck Road ARE NOT to make a left turn on Pontiac Trail.
October 19 Update:
Southbound Beck Road will be closed Friday, October 20 through Sunday, October 22. The center turn lane remains closed due to the dip in the pavement elevations between the new and old pavement. There will continue to be NO LEFT TURN from northbound Beck Road onto Pontiac Trail until after Sunday. The southbound Beck Road detour will be Pontiac Trail west to Wixom Road, then south on Wixom to West Road. Thank you for your patience.
October 16 Update:
Due to the forecasted rain over the weekend, Cadillac Asphalt was not able to complete the next stage of the Beck Road Improvements. Southbound Beck Road is now set to close on Friday, October 20 through Sunday, October 22. The center turn lane remains closed due to the dip in the pavement elevations between the new and old pavement. During these dates, there will continue to be NO LEFT TURN from northbound Beck Road onto Pontiac Trail. The southbound Beck Road detour will be Pontiac Trail west to Wixom Road south to West Road. Thank you for your continued patience while we wait for good weather.
October 9 Update:
Cadillac Asphalt was unable to pave southbound Beck Road this past weekend due to the forecasted rain. They need two full days to pave the area and the ground needs to be dry for the fabric to be installed properly. The southbound Beck Road paving is now scheduled for this Friday through Sunday (October 13-15). A "no left turn" sign will be posted at Pontiac Trail for northbound Beck Road traffic. Thanks for your patience.
October 4 Update:
Southbound Beck Road will be closed beginning the morning of Friday, October 6 through Sunday, October 8. The center turn lane will remain closed due to the dip in the pavement elevations between the new and old pavement. There will continue to be NO LEFT TURN from northbound Beck Road onto Pontiac Trail until Monday.
September 28 Update:
Please be patient as you travel through Wixom today through Sunday, and allow extra driving time. Southbound Beck is closed from Pontiac Trail to West Road, which is causing a great deal of traffic in both directions of Pontiac Trail. Also, northbound Beck Road traffic is NOT able to turn left on Pontiac Trail. We understand this is an inconvenience for our residents, but it will be well worth it to have Beck Road smoothed out. Thanks for your understanding.
September 26 Update:
Starting Thursday, September 28th southbound Beck Road will be closed and detoured west on Pontiac Trail, south on Wixom Road and then east on West Road. This detour will be in effect until Sunday, October 1st. Traffic on northbound Beck Road will be maintained.
September 18 Update:
On Monday and Tuesday, the Beck Road construction crew will remove curbs on the east (northbound) side of Beck Road beginning at Pontiac Trail and working their way south towards West Road. Weather permitting, new curbs will be poured on Wednesday and Thursday. Commuters should expect intermittent lane closures in the northbound lane with the usual rotating stop and go signs.
September 11 Update:
There is no construction activity today (Monday), and therefore no lane closures. There will be lane closures of the south-bound lane tomorrow (Tuesday) for the pouring of the concrete curbs. The south-bound pouring should be completed tomorrow. On Wednesday and Thursday, there will be lane closures of the north-bound lane for curb cutting (Wednesday) and curb removal (Thursday). All lane closures will be conducted with the usual rotating Stop and Go signs to allow traffic to pass.
September 7 Update:
Today, the Commerce Construction crew is working on Beck Road north of the railroad tracks, continuing to remove curbs and working north towards Pontiac Trail. They should be done with the west side of the road by Friday night. On Monday morning, another company will begin pouring replacement curbs beginning at Pontiac Trail and working their way south to West Road.
September 6 Update:
Today, the crew will work on the west side of Beck Rd beginning at West Rd and working towards Pontiac Trail. This is the plan for the remainder of the week. The construction company’s foremen will speak with business owners as the need arises.
September 5 Update:
Curb work is slated to begin this week on Beck Road, causing intermittent lane closures. This stage of the construction project will be done as flag work with the usual rotating stop and go signs to allow traffic to pass. We will keep commuters informed as construction schedules are determined.
